How A Pedophile Used Skateboarding

Jenkem Magazine brings to light a cautionary story of how an accused pedophile infiltrated the Atlanta skateboarding scene beginning in 2009 and how long it took to bring the man to justice. The story begins like this:

The following story is something of Atlanta lore, repressed by most everyone who was forced to contend with it. It first started as rumors of pedophilia and sexual assault floating around that were surely too unsettling to be true, before spiraling out of control into a grotesque reality.

At the time, many of us simply wrote it off as, “shit happens,” or “we didn’t know the full story.” It wasn’t until years later, when I mentioned the Atnalta Foundation to a group unfamiliar with the Atlanta skate scene, that I realized how disturbing this story was.
